My first show ... though I have a much stronger affinity for my second show in Augusta ME 09/02/1979 ... I remember being really glad that they played Terrapin, but mostly the venue was much too big and we were at the wrong end of it.

And I wish there were better recordings of it; the Glassberg one you linked is the best, imho, but still not great.

Me, I'm grooving to New Haven 1981. I don't think I could write a better first set song list for Jerry: Alabama, Peggy-O, Must Have Been The Roses, Althea, and China-Cat Rider to cap it off, plus the huge, gorgeous and famous Bob Marley He's Gone in set 2:

I will have to check that out - I am listening to the rough existing recording of the very good 5/12/77 now.

Hay all the weird tape speed changes really bring the 'on a road trip listening to an old bootleg on a crappy player' experience back to life.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

I skipped these two shows - in between Nassau and probably Providence? - and really regretted it. I never got to the second set this morning, but I love that first set ...
